Deacon Igho and Deacon Douglas sat outside his house chatting and drinking a bottle of beer. Deacon Igho started the discussion.

”Deacon, you are happy now o, you are now a pastor o.” ”Which happy? What should I be happy about? Douglas asked.

”Ah ah, shay you that was angry when they made Chris the assistant pastor, you wanted the position and now you’ve gotten it so why are you still angry?” Igho asked.

”Assistant pastor to who? To that Chris? That small boy? That nobody? When did he give his life to Christ that he is a pastor and I will be his assistant. Besides what benefit do I have from been his assistant for only three months. Abeg don’t say it again o. I am not happy at all. ”

”But at all at all na im bad. Don’t you think so? Igho asked.

”I would have preferred they made me the pastor of the new branch than make me an assistant to that rat Chris. That small boy that I cleaned his yansh as a small boy.” Douglas lamented.

Igho: But deacon, seriously speaking politics is going on in this church o. From no where they just made Odogwu a pastor.

Douglas: ehn, such is life na. You get money? He has money, he must have bribed King and Chris. I heard when they were building the church he was always there, pumping his time and money into it, why won’t they make him pastor. See ehn, heaven is far. We know those that are going o. Forget the big big names you are calling.

Igho: (laughing) you know those that are going? Because you are Jesus, do you think you are going to heaven?

Douglas: what kind of talk is that? I am going to heaven, my place is secured there already.

Igho burst out laughing. ”Be there deceiving yourself, you are not going anywhere, you that has bad plans and drinking beer. Which heaven? (He continues laughing)

Douglas: (raising the bottle of beer up) this beer, you are judging me because of this beer, listen let me tell you why I drink. Sometimes i go to beer parlours to preach to them about Jesus. I don’t want them feeling awkward and so I take one bottle. To make them feel secured. The Bible says when you are with the Romans behave like the Romans. So I drink to win them to Jesus.

Igho continued laughing. ”I hear you ,na you be ROMANUS, continue. Abeg let me go and meet pastor King o before he travels let me see if I can hustle to be the assistant pastor to Odogwu.
He stood up and left as Douglas continued with his beer.

Brother Chuks had asked sister Gift to wait after rehearsals that he has something to discuss with her. And so after the rehearsals sister Gift waited. Happiness had asked her to come let them walk home together but she had insisted on waiting to see brother Chuks. Happiness felt somehow but decided to go.

After sometime brother Chuks came to sister Gift and asked that they walk home together.

”Sister Gift, do you know you are a very beautiful girl and a very talented sister” he asked. ”Ah MD, you have started teasing me o, me talented singer, anyways thank you. I have a good MD and he is teaching me well.” She responded.

”Sister Gift, I want to settle down, a lot of sisters are on my neck in this church and I don’t like it, I just want to settle down with one so that the others can let me be”.

Gift looked at him before answering. ”But everyone knows you have someone you are engaged to and you love so much. And so even if many of us are attracted to you we just have to stay off because you are taken already.”

They both laughed for sometime and then brother Chuks continued. ”Actually dear, there is no one in my life. That was a story I just put up to scare girls away and still they keep flocking around me. No matter how hard I try. I really just wanna serve God. (He raised his hands up to heaven as he was speaking) Am burning for Him, my life my everything is for him, I don’t want these distractions but these sisters won’t let me be.” He finally concluded.

”That’s really bad o Gift said, I love how you love the Lord. I just hope these sisters don’t drag you to sin o.

Chuks then held her hands. ”Sister Gift. I have observed you in the choir for some time and you are different, I want you to be my special friend. Together we can work for God and make heaven proud. I am really attracted to you. Let’s be one. I have prayed about this and the holyspirit has assured me that you are the one. Please don’t say no to me please. ” he was almost going down on his knees.

”MD, sister Gift replied, God is faithful. If only you know how much I have secretly prayed for you to be mine. Yes! I accept yes! Together let’s make heaven proud. ” she jumped on him and gave him a tight hug. ” But you have to keep this within us for now okay? Whenever I tell of my special friend now, be aware that it is you. Okay my love?” Chuks asked. ”Yes yes yes she replied giggling excitedly.

They walked a little distance before they parted ways. Brother Chuks had told Gift he would want her to visit him later so they can sing together. He was very happy that he was able to win her. He looked at himself over and spoke silently to himself.

”The Lord is good” he smiled and went his way.
